Hall of Fame Value


Such a no-brainer for Sauvignon Blanc fans…owner/maker Robin Akhurst consistently nails it with this wine. 2016: rich ripe lemon, white peach, lemon tea, kiss of the tropical fruits. Lovely texture…more than most SBs (barrel ferment in neutral oak then tank aged for 6 months). “Fancier” wineries would sell this, easily, for twice the price.

More Information

Scotsman Robin Akhurst learned he loved wine while attending Edinburgh University. His wine journey took him to Provence, Burgundy, Barossa Valley and finally Napa Valley. Working next to and learning from great winemakers all along the way. He makes tiny lots of wine under his Apsara label (this SB case in point – 110 cases) while keeping his “day job” as winemaker at Clos Pegase and Swanson Vineyards. Robin is talented, modest, and dedicated to making delicious, honest wines that speak of their place. Doesn’t get any better than that.
